Ask an UK Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
about 3 or 4 years ago. It could be a simple case of the cheque being lost in the post. I don't remember the registration unfortunately. All my important paperwork was destroyed when my house flooded.
Short of writing to every company that does motor insurance inthe UK (something solicitors have to do from time to time!) And depending onhow long ago this was, all the information on insurance and who insures whatwith regard to motor vehicles is held by the Motor Insurers Bureau on the MotorInsurance Database. http://www.mib.org.uk/Motor+Insurance+Database/en/default.htm
I don't know how long they keep their records for but I wouldimagine that it was certainly for six years.
I would certainly right to the Motor Insurers Bureau MID in thefirst instance ask who it was insured with and if they have the policy number.If that comes up trumps, you are home and dry. If they have no records, then...
After that, I'm afraid that if they have no records, (and indeed,even during the last six years they may be incomplete) there is no alternativebut to write all the insurance companies who deal with motor insurance and hopethat you get a reply. You will need the date of the insurance and the date ofregistration number of the vehicle. I note that you say you don't have the registration number of the vehicle and that could present a major problem because everything is indexed by that.
By all means try but I'm afraid that I wouldn't be holding my breath.
